Hey, thanks Marten!
On initial testing this seems to have solved the problem.
More testing to do … but so far so good.
I seem to be able to read in H15.5 files, render …
and the mplay/image viewer windows seems to terminate correctly.
So far, no nagging image viewer icons hanging in the doc. They seem to be disappearing, as expected, when I kill the window.
Thanks again. This is much farther than I’ve gotten so far.
